IN 2021, THE SOUTH PUGET SOUND REGION CHANGED THE WAY IT SELLS INDIVIDUAL SPECIALIZED FOREST PRODUCT (BRUSH AND/OR MUSHROOM) PERMITS FOR CAPITOL FOREST. OUR OFFICE WILL NO LONGER SELL PERMITS IN-PERSON. We will sell 2022 permits again by mail only
, starting January 1, 2022, through September 30, 2022. Detailed information regarding Capitol Forest Brush and Mushroom Permits for 2022 is available here
Anyone wishing to purchase a Capitol Forest Brush and/or Mushroom Permit in 2022 will need to print and complete this Special Forest Products Permit application
and mail it to the South Puget Sound Region Office in Enumclaw along with the appropriate payment and a copy of the Permittee’s valid photo identification. Permit fees must be paid with a cashier’s check
or money order only, made payable to the ‘Dept. of Natural Resources’ or ‘DNR’. No other forms of payment, including cash or personal checks, will be accepted.
Incomplete or incorrect cashier’s checks or money orders will also be rejected and returned. Application processing time will be up to ten (10) business days from the time the application is received. Please ensure that each section of the application is fully complete, including appropriate check boxes, and provide all information as required. All applications which are incomplete, illegible, or contain the incorrect payment amount and/or type will be rejected and returned to the applicant along with any payment received.
A map showing our two permit areas to choose from is located here
. Each permit is valid for only one of the permit areas only.
Once a valid application has been processed, a Specialized Forest Products Harvesting Permit, (accompanied by a harvest area map, Permit Conditions sheet, County hauling permit, vehicle windshield placard, and a receipt) will be mailed back to the Permittee at the address listed on the application.
Each individual Permit will be valid and harvesting can begin when the Permittee signs the signature blocks where indicated. Permittees purchasing a Permit for the Grays Harbor County permit area will also need to have their hauling permit validated by the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office in Montesano prior to harvesting.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we adjust our business practices to better serve our communities. This new process provides critical health and safety protections for both our staff and clients during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
